Hangovers and Heaven


In the world of addiction
The father of lies

Spewing half truths
About your value


Spurring sinful desires
Taste and behavior together

The path seems not harmless
His truth says the wage for sin is death


With His love and powerful grace
Any and all can turn their face


Open your eyes
You cannot see or fathom His size

Just trust His might to save
You from a life of danger with an early grave


Let go of the people
Far away from Christ’s steeple


Start small
Praying about each and every draw

To sin
It is a beginning again


One with a different ending
Because His victory lives in our hearts mending

Breathe into Him

He will breathe back


Lean into His truth
Spirit will guide and cue

You are
a seed

Of growth
Allow pain to release, nurturance to flow

You are and always will be His
Worthy and created for Him



Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through Him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses (Acts 13:38-39).

I pray for those chained by addiction to seek Jesus with all their hearts and souls and minds. Freedom in Christ on this earth is also freedom from death. Though our physical bodies will die, we are promised eternal life with God if we believe and receive Him now.

God has designed all sorts of treatment to assist with freedom from addiction.

National Helpline for Substance Abuse and Mental Health:


Don’t wait. Get help to free yourself from drugs and alcohol.

Don’t wait. Call on Jesus to save you today. He will be your comfort and confidant as you walk away from addiction, if you let Him.

In Christ,
